The APA includes representatives from local, county and state law enforcement that protect & serve across the greater Westchester County area. At times, we rely on them to coordinate and share information with our law enforcement agencies in Putnam County. Many of their officer’s call Putnam County home and I am, once again, honored to have their support.”
